Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, the student and I worked on the writing section of the ACT. We went over what the parts of a strong essay are and what the structure should look like by using the example of a perfect essay from the book. We then practiced planning out an essay, and writing another one. We got through the first three paragraphs together. She will finish the essay and email it to me so that I can give her specific feedback on the remaining paragraphs before she attempts another practice essay."
"Went over one math section. Looked at area for improvement: plane and coordinate geometry, matrices. Also reviewed reading strategy. The student is doing very well. Homework: find natural science reading practice."
"We started the session reviewing the extra practice work the student had completed. He was able to complete some of the math practice (parallel lines transected by another line). We finished working through the math section that we hadn't completed last week. He had some quadratic questions to work through for extra math practice. Next we moved on to the Reading section. We talked about the 2 sections that he had completed, and he had struggled a little some in answering the questions. The passages this week were on the more difficult side, and after we had discussed, and clarified passage content, he was able to correctly answer almost all the questions. We reviewed strategies for answering questions, and he has two more sections to work through for Thursday. Finally, we also worked on science passages. Specifically, today we focused on paired passages. He does better with graphs and tables. He has 2 science passages to also work through for Thursday."
